On Good Friday at 3pm Catholics liturgy solemnly commemorate the passion and death of Christ and it's usually held in the afternoon at 3 pm which is the time that Christ's passion is understood to have taken place.

The Lamb of God is a lion like lamb which rises to deliver victory after being slain and appears several times in the Book of Revelation.

The lamb of God is also the title for Jesus which appears in the Gospel of John.

It also appears at John 1:29 where John the Baptist sees Jesus and exclaims, Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

And it also appears again in John 1:36

Jesus was crucified on April 3rd, AD 33.

Other dates are possible when Jesus was crucified by any believers of Jesus can take great assurance from the fact in that most important historical events in Jesus's life like the crucifixion and are firmly anchored in human history.

The sweet smell in the nostrils of god is the honoring of Christ, the savior that brings peace between man and God.

As individuals bow in humility and worship, their sacrifice was a sweet smell to god.

The stench in God's nostrils is also known as the Sin's Stench.

The Lord God smells sin from heaven and it is described in Scripture as an unpleasantly-smelling smoke in His nostrils (Isaiah 65:5).

However, on the day of your conversion God gave you a bath.

He washed you by the cleansing blood of Christ and the spiritual washing of the Spirit (1 John 1:7; Titus 3:5).

In Isaiah, God indicted the haughty and vain daughters of Zion, saying He'd strip them of their finery, “Instead of a sweet smell there will be a stench.”

Isaiah 3:24 Sin stinks to high heaven.

Sin screams and moans and shrieks its awfulness to God.

Twice per day, morning and twilight, the priests burned incense and met with the Lord.

God had a “signature” scent which we know contained frankincense, but the other ingredients remain debated.

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
